Editor News Make a Comment

The US-based London International Awards have summonsed one Kiwi and an Aussie to jury service for its annual NEW and Social Influencers in LIA show – this year being held in Shanghai on Wednesday 7 November.

LIA has named OMD managing partner Andrew Reinholds to represent New Zealand on the jury. The Aussie is Airbag Melbourne’s Adrian Bosich.

Reinholds’ most recent public appearance was as a facilitator at the Comms Council’s 2018 Beacons Entry Writing Workshop in Auckland earlier this year.

The LIA is a creative awards show with a special emphasis on media – it has grown from honouring three media types (TV & Cinema, Print and Radio) to the current landscape honouring 22 unique media.

“In 2004, the word ‘Advertising’ was removed to reflect that it awards more than just advertising in an ever-changing industry.”

In 2004, the word “Advertising” was removed from the annual competition’s name to reflect the fact that it awards more than just “advertising” in an ever-changing industry.

LIA president Barbara Levy said: “The NEW is all about showcasing unexpected advertising ideas that highlight new roles for brands and agencies. This can be based on emerging media technologies like AR/VR/data or actions and brand experiences or ideas and supply chains in terms of being an influencer.
